Blurb:

~~In a world covered by snow, where deadly predators are everywhere, resources scarce, and love even more elusive, two young women hold the key to the mysterious death and destruction surrounding their cave dwelling people. One side wants to keep these women alive and the other side wants to see them dead, but how can these young women tell the difference between the two sides? And what is the dark secret in their past that holds the key to the threats of today?

The sole survivor of a bloody genocide attempt, Iana runs for her life, but is there anywhere safe to run? Daniel swore to his dying brother that he would protect the small woman and her sister, but how can he help a girl who continually puts her life in danger? As Daniel binds Iana closer to himself, and his own dark secret life, Iana finds herself drawn to him in more than one way.

 

Excerpt:

“Hang on, Nathanial. I’m coming to get you,” Iana said.

The Raven Dog above her seemed reinvigorated at this new movement from its trapped prey. The mad dog danced on the edge above her with snapping jaws and bloody teeth. Every move the creature made sent rock and dirt cascading over Iana’s head. Her grip was already precarious and weak on the rocky cliff she was scaling. Any amount of falling debris was dangerous and could dislodge her handholds, causing her to fall.

“Iana, what are you doing? Don’t do it; stay where you are.”

“Still trying to tell me what to do Nathanial?” Iana tossed back to him, trying to keep both their spirits up. “Haven’t you learned yet?”

“Don’t risk this, Iana. I’m not worth it.”

“Yes you are!” she countered and continued to creep slowly over toward him. Her hands were shaking so hard she was scared they would shake off the rocky ledge. Maybe she should have taken off her gloves, but then she would just have the cold to deal with.

“Iana, go back. It’s too dangerous. There is snow all over that cliff; you will slip and fall.”

Iana looked over to the bush where the wind was blowing against him. He was very pale in the dusty pink light of the setting sun. He was too white Iana thought.

“Keep talking to me, Nathanial, okay?” she yelled at him.

A frigid gust of wind blew up, tossing Iana’s hair wildly. The snow swirled about, blinding her temporarily. Iana clung closer to the rough cliff wall with her eyes squeezed tight, waiting till it died down. Her lips were quivering now, but she didn’t know if it was from the cold or fear. What had made her think she could climb across to him like this?

“Hey, Easterner,” Nathanial called to her, “never seen a mouse so bad at climbing before; maybe you should have stayed behind?” he teased.

Iana opened her eyes and shot him a look that could kill. Rising to the challenge, she said, “Don’t worry, mice are very good at improvising when it comes to survival.”

Iana was frozen with fear. She could feel the tears of anger and despair start to well up in her eyes and she fought hard to push them away. She hadn’t been climbing long when Nathanial decided to continue his harassment.

“You really aren’t very good at that you know,” he said.

Iana screamed back in mock frustration, “Training for rock climbing isn’t till the next lunar!”

Nathanial kept the banter up in a lighthearted voice, but when Iana looked his way she could see his eyes were closed against the cold and he was shaking as he tried to hang on.

“I’m just saying…that you might want to work on that when we get back if you want to be a Rambler,” he continued teasing her in a trembling voice.

“I’m beginning to rethink that occupational choice at the moment,” Iana confessed, only half joking.

Nathanial laughed into the wind this time. “Aha! I knew you didn’t really want to make this run today,” he joked.

“Haven’t you bled to death yet?” Iana countered, and Nathanial laughed out loud again.

It was good to hear him laugh. Nathanial was quiet for a long moment. When he spoke next, it was in a low and serious voice. “You know I didn’t mean all that mean stuff I said to you back there at the start ribbon.”

“I know,” Iana said, forgiving him.

She paused a moment and leaned her head against the rock wall to catch her breath. It was then that Iana noticed the absence of the Raven dog from overhead. She held her breath and waited for it to return. Shadows passed over and Iana sniffed hard against her runny nose. The longer she waited, the more her nerves set on edge. Suddenly a head appeared over the edge—a human head. It was Daniel reaching his hand down to her.

But now she must find the strength to fight for liberation. Banish the demons forever and embrace true love, before she is devoured by the spirits of yesterday.

See the book trailer on Youtube!

 

Excerpt:

Her wall was crumbling fast as choked sobs escaped. Her teeth clenched as she willed her body to be strong and behave.

An apology just didn’t cut it. What a nerve thinking he could just waltz back into Vernazza and expect her to be anything other than angry with him? What did he hope her reaction to be?

“You’ve been stalking me!” She turned her head slightly to project her voice.

“No! I haven’t! I had to find you. There is so much I need to tell you, only I didn’t expect…”

“What? What didn’t you expect? Spit it out Jake and hurry up!”

“Something has happened to you! I tried to tell you earlier. You’re in danger!”

“Danger? The only danger I’m in is from you. I don’t want you here. Why can’t you understand that?” Did he not understand English? She’d practically spelt it out for him in every way possible.

And he thinks I’m the stubborn one! Okay, you’re doing good Kate. Stay strong.

“I’m here to help you. You need to hear me out. I promise, if you listen to what I have to say and you still want me to go, I will. I’ll go and I’ll never bother you again.”

Silence. Jesus! Why was she even considering this? It was absurd.

“How do I know you’re not lying to try to get me to forgive you?”

“I wouldn’t lie about something like this. About you. This is a life or death situation. I’ve never been more serious about anything. Except for my feelings for you. They will never change. You have to hear me out and then I’ll leave. You have my word.”

About the Author:

Amanda Mackey was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia when she was 12 years old with her family, where she has lived ever since. She has loved books since an early age and is an avid reader. This has helped lay the foundation for her writing. She’s published 2 non-fiction books and has her fiction novels titled, Instinctual and Instinctual 2 out now.
Amanda hopes to make writing her full time career.

 

Trivia About Amanda Mackey:

I spend my free time avidly reading, next to spending time with family of course! I have an addiction to all things books!

My favourite part of writing is when I get an idea in my head for a book and actually start. It’s an amazing feeling to begin creating something from an idea in your head. Instinctual came to me while driving my kids to school!!

My interest in writing came about from a young age when I dabbled in writing poetry. It was a feeling inside me that beckoned to come out. I was in my early 20’s when the desire to write a full novel hit.

Advice for other writers is to continually hone your craft by learning all you can about the art of writing. I’m continually trying to improve mine! Also if you believe in yourself and your work it’s only a matter of time before others will too.

 

Some more needless trivia about me:

1 My favourite colour is not one but two colours. Blue and Green are equally my favourites.

2. My favourite holiday was a 6 week trip to the US when I was just 18. I travelled alone from Australia and ventured on a 3 week camping tour and then I stayed with a pen-pal whom I met for the first time for the other three weeks.

3. My most embarrassing moment was when I worked at Seaworld and a friend of mine who is a voice-over expert pretended to call me up at work, claiming she was a well-recognized television personality and I believed her!!

4. My dream vacation would be visiting the setting of Instinctual which is in Vernazza, Italy.

5. Something unique about me is that I have an extra bone near my shoulder clavicle.

6. One food I will never touch is fish eggs or roe.

7. Favourite book is a hard one because I have read so many but I would have to say the Hush Hush series – Becca Fitzpatrick.

8. Writing snack of choice is cashew nuts and coffee.

9. Top hobby I do when not writing is read, read, read.

10. My favourite animal would have to be the tiger. Would love to work with them.

In order to escape the realities of her chaotic world, she dives into an Oscar quality role of a young woman trapped in the horrors of postwar Berlin. It is here that Olivia feels most comfortable.

Her real and fictional lives collide when the director casts Dimitri Malakhov, a Russian porn star, as her costar. She immediately fears her image and reputation will be tainted. Personally and professionally, she must face what frightens her most—exposing herself, her fears, her imperfections and her desires to the world.

The experience of filming the movie with Dimitri and being on location in Berlin destroys her prejudices and judgments. It shatters all her illusions and perceptions. When liberated from her own confines, her life and love truly shine.

Blurb:

Catnap often. Don’t be a stalker unless food is involved. Despite the rumor, it is okay to be curious! A Cat Taught Me That is filled with humorous advice and the wisdom of elder cats that includes information on how to get more out of life, and how to avoid common pitfalls along the way. Cat lovers will enjoy the adorable photographs and cute illustrations throughout.

Celebrity cat ‘Awesome Louie’ provides insight with his gritty cat interviews, as well as sage advice with his “Mewsings” column. Short essays from the cat-lady author will bring smiles to the faces of readers who have learned that “Not All That Glitters is Gold” and “To Be Kissed By a Cat” can have unintended consequences.

 

Excerpt:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
“A Little Indulgence is Okay”

I’m Louie and I’ve been told I have a problem with cat treats. Of course, a problem is in the eye of the beholder. In my eyes, loving cat treats isn’t a problem unless I run out of them.

After I was rescued, I learned three things about my caregiver and new best friend. First, food was readily available day or night; I would never be hungry again. Second, I was now living in a house that was warm and cozy; freezing outside in the winter was highly unlikely. Third, I learned about this tasty food called “snacks”. I would come to love it when my caregiver announced the magical words with enthusiasm – “Kitty treats!”

When I was first introduced to this fabulous dining experience, the flavors included turkey, beef and chicken. Eventually catnip and dairy-flavored treats entered the scene. Once I tasted those little nuggets of goodness, I was hooked.

I perfected the sad kitty face, which is subtle and very effective when done properly. The trick is to look longingly at your target and try not to blink. Raise a paw in a slightly pathetic manner towards the treat container as the caregiver opens it – a classic move.

While my owner swears that she may check me into a clinic for cats with food addictions, she is more purr than hiss. I know that the next time she comes home from the pet store with kitty snacks, she’ll rattle the bag because she knows I’m listening. I’ll come racing into the kitchen like a furry, 16 pound bowling ball on steroids, and she’ll love me for it. And give me treats.

Take it from me, you can never be too furry or have too many treats!
